Welcome to our supervision page!
We are passionate about chaplains, pastoral carers, pastors and leaders having good support and engaging in personal and professional development.
Professional Pastoral Supervision is a great way to engage in transformational learning, reflective practice and holistic self-care.
To have someone to meet with every 4 – 8 weeks in a safe confidential space to reflect on your ministry, to get encouragement, support and to gain a broader perspective on situations you may be facing. To assist you to identify what you love to do, your calling, your core values and to better understand why you respond and react the way you do in certain circumstances. It can also assist with skills training and learning pathways.
